. there's no way you can shut down outrageous speech in the country of the united states, it's going to happen, but if the responsibility of responsible officials in egypt and other countries throughout the world to take actions to protect embassies and they are the ones who are responsible, and the extremists sure -- stirring up the crowds are responsible. talking about the video really is to distract from the real problem. gerri: you have a lot of experience in these proceedings as deputy secretary of defense under george w. bush. people staid it's bush's fault the arab world is in unrest today. do you agree? how do you respond? >> i don't at all. look, these extremists were breeding in the arab world for years under horrible dictators. 9/11 happened with basically before george w. bush even appeared, and i believe in fact that the dictatorships of the arab world gave credit the to the extremists who attacks the governments for denying freedom to their people. sooner or later, those governments collapse both because of age and also, frankly, because ashes want freedom as well, and
should be the response to this? >> well, the united states cannot afford to flee under fire. in libya, i think president obama's actually doing the right thing by sending in additional marines and maintaining our dip -- diplomatic presence. e just a minute -- egypt is another question, however. it's the accountability at best that the egyptian government was negligent. the idea that the united states has to subsidize governments like this is a question which many people ask back in washington. gerri: michael, we are subsidizing that government. as a matter of fact, we decided to forgive a billion of debt they owe us. >> well, one of the big policy questions that's looming over the horizon is whether egypt is too big to fail much since the arab sprang began, egypt lost more than two-thirds of the hard currency reserves. initially, the arab spring was about economics, accountability, corruption. it's clear that islamists have hijacked it. they were caught by as much surprise as the united states has. the question is if we keep subsidizing the egyptian government, do we, in effect, give the
what communications they had leing up to september 11th, and, if, in fact, the united states state department knew in advance of the attack this ambassador felt like he was in danger of death or imminent demise from action and we didn't take action to secure him, that sends an appalling message to ambassadors aren't the world representing united states. >> if you requested them, can the committee subpoena the items if you don't get them? >> they can move forward and we have talked with members of the committee and the leadership. if the administration claims executive privilege or looks the other way we will continue to pursue it. we think the american people, the congress of the united states and certainly the family of craig stevens deserve an answer and deserve it now. >> you have been in briefings about this, what do you make about the narrative that we have heard from officials well it was linked to this video and it is still being investigated and we are not sure and today within the intelligence community, within the first 24 hours, they felt confident this was a terrorist a

you are president of the united states, you are president of all the people. not just the people who voted for you. >> you've got to look at what the guy has talked about through the whole campaign. he believes that every american has to have skin in the game. has to have a stake. and he doesn't want what the president wants works i is a bigger, more bloated government that's taking more people's money and being more oppressive on people's lives. he wants to empower individuals through sacrifice and opportunity to get their lives as date as they can and be make america greater. >> the real story behind these comments is what is behind it is president obama's very deliberate attempt to do class warfare as part of his campaign strategy. it's president obama who has decided to divide the electorate down those levels. >> i get the general feeling that with more and more people becoming dependent on government, that by next july we could perhaps be so -- it will be dependence day, not independence day. this is not something i am just feeling alone. >> oh, come on. oh, come on. >> this cou

smoke coming out of the u.s. embassy. they have replaced the united state flag. there are also reports they have taken over an american school there as well. fox is trying to confirm all of this. it is similar to what we are seeing and other countries, in particular lebanon. at least one person was killed in the protest. many more were wounded. this comes as pope benedict xvi arrived in lebanon. protesters they were seen ripping up his picture ahead of his visit to lebanon. here in afghanistan, we feared there would be widespread violence. so far, those have not materialized. it has been very peaceful here in kabul. there are real concerns that the rights will spread to afghanistan or pakistan in the coming days. melissa: connor, thank you for that report. lori: these are trying times, that is for sure. let's see how the markets are reacting. nicole petallides is on the floor of the new york stock exchange. nicole: we are keeping a close eye on some of the office product retailers. there is news. the first set of news is stapled it now has private equity firms interested in taking it p
as with the parliament there. he will be out of office next year. the united states government was right not to show up in the general assembly. at least 12 others countries boycotted the event. that's a little unusual at the united nations but he deserves it because he doesn't ever say anything useful and given our strong support for israel in particular, we had to make a statement today, the obama administration did make a statement, we're not going to listen to him anymore. >> do you think that the administration made a mistake in having the president really not in action here? this is the first time, really unprecedented for him to have no bilateral meetings not with just our closest aallies, but morsi is here, this is a pivotal moment with egypt, he spoke to the united nations, all these meetings held by hillary clinton and not by the president of the united states. jon stewart interviewing king abdullah of jordan last night and posing that question. >> you were at the u.n. today. does anyone -- is there any discussion amongst world leaders about the american president not being available for face
've always expected people would get in the united states of america. that only comes from the private sector. that's where, i think, the romney approach, people will find to be the right one. >> this market has been rallying. of course, it seems to be working in obama's favor, even though it's probably has a lot more to do with the central bank and all of the easing out there than it does to the policies. is there any reason to believe that if this president is re-elected, then he moves to the center that, he does the policies that you're talking about that romney, of course, has been leading with? >> i think that's been my greatest disappointment, that we have not seen this government move more to a centerous approach to move the country forward. there were numerous opportunities to do that. i just don't think it aligns with where the president would like to take the country. there's one approach that says static pie, let's figure out how to split it up. that's the approach that's being taken. when they say we're all in this together, we're all in this together, but we're going to take from
of doubt and decline. we can elect mitt romney the president of the united states and get america back on track. >> shepard: democrats had planned a similar tactic to send vice president bide ton florida during the convention in florida. the president called off that visit because hurricane isaac was hitting. congressman ryan is leading the charge against the president it would appear, carl? >> that's right, shep. republicans are making good their pledge to make this the most aggressive counter argument that's ever happened at a convention. they do site he had planned to be in florida at the republic national convention though they were interrupted by isaac. marco rubio, nikki haley, the governor of south carolina, governor of oklahoma as well. ryan gave what was more the most part a standard stump speech signal the question for the week for are you better off now as you were four years ago reagan made famous. here is paul ryan's 2012 rendition. >> every president since the great depression who asked americans to send them into a second term could say you are better off today than you
is that he's running for president of the united states. he's not running for president of one half of the united states or president of the republican party. and as barack obama said so brilliantly in his speech at the convention, you know, we're a community and we need to all work together to a common goal. and you know, to divide the country and say this half is this half is just wrong. second, his facts are wrong. that 47%, those people are paying taxes. many of them are paying a higher tax rate than mitt romney is because they're paying their payroll taxes at 14%. and third, all politicians should understand, when you're running for president or any other office, you can't talk out of both sides of your mouth. you can't go to a fund-raiser and say one thing and then go on tv and say another thing. you need to speak consistently about what you're for. and it just goes to show the choice we have in this election is so stark, and mitt romney has laid it out so clearly that i think democrats, rightfully this morning, and people in the country, rightfully this morning, see what they

with other western nations, including the united states, about their response to the syrian civil war. remember, last month, our president drew a line in the sand saying plans for possible military involvement would change if syria uses or even moves their potentially deadly chemical weapons. president obama's remarks came at height of the election season, of course, that same week, governor romney said fell elected he would send u.s. troops to syria to keep those weapons from falling into the wrong hands. the violence has reportedly reached a new milestone: according to groups in the country, 5,000 people were killed in syria's civil war during the month of august, alone. if true, it is the highest one-month death toll since the crisis started to unfold more than 17 months ago. the chief fox correspondent, jonathan hunt, is in new york city with that report. a new united nations envoy is taking over for kofi annan but he does not sound optimistic. >>jonathan: he does not. he is a well traveled algerian diplomat, who, in fact, brought about an end to the lebanese civil war in 1990. bu

one. number two the president needs to talk about the relationship between the united states and israel. when he says that israel, that the united states always has their back on all issues what does that specifically mean? i think, three, the president owes it to the people of this country to know what his foreign policy is. the president in 2008 laid out a foreign policy that he would hit reset button with russia. i believe that has failed. melissa: yeah. >> he said he would have negotiations with iran. that has clearly failed. iran is closer to nuclear weapon, melissa, than ever before. he has said that the arab world would have a much better relationship because he is the president. that's not the case when you have these sort of concerted organized abuses going on. melissa: right. start with the first one, saying the war on terror is still ongoing. do you think that it is realistic that he would do that give that he sort of spiked the football with the death of osama bin laden saying that it was almost over? do you think that he is really going to acknowledge that is sti

working worldwide are working in the united states. we're producing more, we're using less. that's a path to energy independence, and i like that. jenna: so it's interesting that you're a democrat and you're governor of montana because i went back and lookedded at some of the voting records in your state, and if you look at the way your state has voted in the presidential lengths, it's voted mainly republican going back to the clintons, right now it looks like your state leaning towards mitt romney. why are you supporting the president? what is it about the president that continues to get your support when the people that you represent may not be as convinced? >> oh, gosh, i think it's been since lbj since a democrat got to 50% in montana, so that's not unusual. but this president was, inherited one of the worst economies in the history of this country. 29 consecutive months of increasing private sector jobs. by the way, all over this country we've been decreasing public sector jobs. in montana public sector jobs are down by 4.2%, and we're at 6.5% unemployment. so we've created 4.5 milli
income in the united states, bringing it to the lowest level since 1995. gretch, over to you and peter johnson. >> gretchen: thanks very much. egyptian authorities are seek the death penalty now for seven christians living in the united states. for their part in producing that anti-islamic film that sparked violent protests across the middle east. so do you think that's harsh? well, then there is this, a conservative web site, brightbart.com, reports the u.s. state department could be currently in negotiations with the egyptians to transfer one of their citizens to terrorists back home. that man you've seen, known as the blind sheik, serving a life sentence for his part in the 1993 world trade center bombing. here with more is fox news legal analyst peter johnson, jr. >> hi. >> gretchen: so this is a claim by breitbart.com, fox has not been able to confirm this. state department spokesperson was asked about it yesterday and she denied this transfer might be going on. >> denied. but president morsi raised this issue, president of egypt in the campaign before he became president. so ther
surveillance in the united states. after their two weeks of work, lawmakers will likely only finish government spending, maybe disaster aid or benefits for needy families. it is very unlikely congress resolves anything on taxes, fiscal cliff, post office reform, or the farm bill. and a top house republican blames it on the senate and says it is all democrats. >> the u.s. congress has been working quite a bit. it's the u.s. senate that's been stopping everything. so we don't know how much comes to fruition, but we do know we will get things through the house, but when it gets to the senate -- [inaudible]. rich: democrats say it is the republicans fault. in an op-ed in politico, it says since president obama took office republicans have done little but obstruct and delay. democrats have offered their plans. republicans theirs. neither sees the political benefit of negotiating any of this until they know who wins in november. connell: rich, thank you. rich edson in d.c. for more, let's bring douglas holtz-eakin in, former cbo director, also in washington. it's almost a joke to us after a while, t
policy of the united states, progressive area into the fdr and lbj years and we accept those laws now as part of redistribution. stuart: judge, i've the got to jump in. i would go further. i would maintain that to some degree, redistribution, neo-socialism is popular. >> it's popular. certainly popular with the 47% of whom mitt romney spoke. and some receive some for social security and medicare, most are paid money from the government. >> paying payroll taxes on that money. >> this is a scam. here is the the scam. when fdr sold the country on social security, he said we will quote, hold your money for you, his word. we will hold it for you and when you retire, we will give you back your nest egg. he was lying. we know he was lying because at the same time he said we will hold your money for you, he dispatched justice department lawyers to the supreme court to argue against challenges on the constitutionality of social security. and then those arguments, the lawyers said it's not the money of the taxpayer, it's the federal government's money and the federal government is free to spend
. the defense minister pointed out we have best relations between israel and united states of the securities we have ever had. we have operation iron dome which allows the folks in israel to be protected from these rockets. i think it is one of those things that it is election year thing. connell: but the week of the u.n. general assembly, you don't think that's a fair political criticism from the other side? say hey listen, there's a lot going on here in the world, you should have sat down with them, you don't think that's fair? >> i don't think it's fair. he keeps good communications with the rest of the world. our relations with the rest of the world have been better than a long time. when i travel, people were very very pleased with what the administration was doing. they respect the president. look, we're in the last what 40 some days of a presidential campaign. that's the high priority. connell: let's talk about that a little bit before we let you go. the republicans would say look at the unemployment rate under president obama how it's stayed above 8%, this is quote unquote our year, we
the list of one of the wealthiest people in the united states for the 12 year. he has a net worth of $66 billion. while the head of berkshire hathaway came in second with a net worth of $46 billion. that's the latest from the fox business, giving you the power to prosper. melissa: so the fiscal cliff is quickly approaching. let's find out what congress is doing about it. rich edson joins us in d.c. with the latest. rich? >> we'll call them the cliff experts. federal reserve chairman ben bernanke, the director of the congressional budget office and the chief of staff on the joint committee on taxation. these are the authorities on capitol hill what lawmakers actions will do to the economy and the federal budget. they're meeting with members of the senate finance committee and others. fox business was there where budget committee chairman kent conrad said congress could work out a framework to solve the cliff before it hits. >> there might be an interim step in order to give time for the committees of jurisdiction to actually come up with some of the specifics. but that the overall agreeme
these guys want to impose a european tax solution on the united states. it doesn't work. neil: there must be a middle ground. >> you have to get out of the recession first. neil: governor dukakis, thank you so much. the governor and i were getting into some of the particulars are mess. the fact of the matter is that as the governor pointed out, it will be able of what you want the governments role to be on spending. now, democrats at this convention are the same, do we want to resort to the policies that got us into this mess, or do we want to continue the policy that many of them argue is just going to continue. that is the point will be taken up later this evening with martin o'malley, who is among those saying that we have to get a handle on how much we are really committed to looking at this for your thing and whether it is something that we are not addressing right now. in other words, democrats are divided as to whether they can make it an easy characterization that you're you are better off than you were four years ago. a lot of times they frame this a different way by saying that
here in new york city, the president of the united states is at u.n. laying out his vision. mitt romney, the republican nominee was lay out his vision, they could not be more different in terms of what their vision is, in terms how to deal with this. the president made clear not just iran but to broaden it out with what happened in libya, he made clear, i can't dictate what is happening on the ground. >>neil: why appear on "the view" to make it look worse that you are detached. >>reporter: he is trying to project an image of, what, me worry? i'm calm and cool. >>neil: four years ago any presidential election, george bush in his election effort in 2004, we were knee-deep in iraq and the war was raging, he was meeting with foreign dick -- dignitaries left and right. >>guest: he was trying to project a united front around the world. i will figure this out. i'm tough on national security. >>neil: but last year, president obama was meeting with a host of people. the year before, a healthy host of people. >>guest: they are not saying it is driven by politics. we are a few weeks from re-electi
of people protesting this anti-muslim film made here in the united states. dagen: rick leventhal from fox news joins us live. rick. >> the pakistani government declared today a national holiday, love for the prophet. nonviolence, but things got ugly fast. and across the streets of pakistan including islamabad to keep protesters from approaching the consulate there. and demonstrations in karachi, five movie theaters were burned and a couple of banks on fire. and one officer killed there. and in peshawar, hundreds of demonstrators set movie theaters on fire and police used tear gas. at some point opened the fire on the people and hit a pakistani news vehicle and killed the driver there. and they were marching through the streets and protesting the anti-muslim film and burned a makeshift coffin draped with an american flag and burned an effigy of president obama and around middle east and africa and security has been beefed up at a number of u.s. and western embassies around the region as a precaution, guys. dagen: rick, thank you for that reporting. connell: and nicole, the new york stock e
the state of the economy than any other government reports we're getting. ashley: united states is one of the world's most economically free countries. think again. the cato institute says the u.s. dropped from the top 10 to 18th on the list in its annual report. coauthor ian vasquez will be our special guest ahead to explain that. 18th in economic --. tracy: we were 10th last year. he has got to tell us what is going on. time for stocks as we do every 15 minutes. we head down to nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. nicole we're down about eight points right now? >> right. the truth is yesterday we gave back about 40 points. wee had two weeks in a row about gains. fed stimulus and bond buying extending low rates. everyone seems to be taking a bit of a breather. right now the dow is down as are s&p and nasdaq as well, all to the downside. down .1 or .2 of a percent. we have winners like apple which obviously broke new records. fedex has come under pressure. fedex once again is warning about a tough global economy. so they came out with their numbers today. they
the president of the united states. there are things that can relieve the price of oil we are not doing. dagen: is it healthy that this is not the kind of shock that we saw in 2008 where it will spike above $100 a barrel, was $135 a barrel at the high. oil has remained relatively high for the american people in the last few years and got me chance to learn to live with it. >> that is true but also hurts everybody. certainly the lower end of the economy if you are a person who has to drive a long distance to work and you have to shell out that much more for your pay, it is a problem. natural gas is going to be a substitute that will have its day. we have an unlimited supply. dagen: would you invest in oil and commodities? >> i am already invested in oil and commodities to a great extent because as i said inflation is a genie in the bottle that will get out sooner or later and ben bernanke and all the politicians in the world can't bribe themselves enough to keep it in. dagen: it would take a healthy economy to trigger that and this economy is not. >> it does not take a healthy economy to trigge
been going in terms of violence, and also, he says this is not over yet because if the united states does not respond appropriately to his mind, which means punishing those involved with this film, he says these protests could continue. i said, what do you want to have dope to the filmmakers? he said, well, i'd like to see them tried in front of a sharia court meaning if they don't repent for insulting the prophet, he thinks they should be executed. that shows how quickly, simply how a jihadist leader talks about an anti-american protest brings out a few thousand people in front of the u.s. embassy. that shows the ground swell of anti-americanism now taking place in cairo. back to you. tracy: leeland, out in cay row, thank you very much. ashley: continuing with rising tensions in the middle east, oil traders growing more concerned as conflicts spread west to oil rich nigeria. phil flynn has more on this. are you concerned then, phil, what's going on in nigeria? >> i am right now. see, egypt doesn't produce a lot of oil, and because we built in good buffer of supply in case of a disru
, colorado. the president of the united states stopping. >> tens of millions of americans with preexisting conditioning by repealing reform. he calls it obama care. i like the name. i do care. we thought to pass that law for families like ryan's. we know the heartbreak of a broken health care system. i don't mind if folks think i care, i do care. and i don't know exactly what the other sides' proposing. i guess you can call it romney doesn't care but this law is here to stay. we are not going to refight the battles of the last four years. we are going to implement this law and make the health care system work for families all across america. it is time to move forward. that is the choice in this election. of course, this isn't just the only battle that they want to refight. they want to refight battles we thought were settled in the last century. in november you will have some say as to whether women should be trusted to make their own health care decisions. i think they are. you'll have some say as to whether students who were brought here by their parents as infants and have gone to scho
people especially in the united states are saying no, thest a matter of free expression. the president of one of those groups was on cnn this morning. >> the only kind of hate speech that is illegal in the united states is when it incites imminent lawlessness and i think google is correct that the video in question did not meet that standard. >> google, which owns youtube, constantly having to make subjective decisions about what videos are okay. >> interesting. but this ist over because the white house has been asked to weigh in on this as well. >> the extent was asking youtube to take another look at it and then they said no, we're not going to do it. what you do have all the time, this is what's so fascinating about the way technology is changing the world. there are so many difficult decisions youtube has to face. for example, they say they don't all allow gory vooid, violent video, then you get these videos out of syria that show gore and violence. what we found is a youtube official who gave a talk a few years ago who said there's something they take a look at. to see whether a v
. there is the united states of america. there is not a black america and a white america and latino america and an asian america, but there is the united states of america. >> from the first time he took to the kconvention speech as th keynoter in 2004, there has been no doubt that barack obama can step into the spotlight and dazzle. four years later in denver, the optics match the excitement for the presidential campaign with greek columns surrounding him in front of a crowd of more than 75,000, and the democratic nominee delivered an electric speech. >> out of work, tough luck, you are on your own. no health care? the market will fix it. you're on your own. born into poverty? pull yourself up by your own boot straps, because even if you don't have boot, you are on your own. well, it is time for them to own their failure. it is time for us to change america, and that's why i'm running for president of the united states. >> this week in tampa, the republicans argue that barack obama is a great talker who doesn't deliver. it frames a dilemma for the third speech at a democratic national conv
as president of the united states. they'd like to hear some specifics. >> well, i can tell them specifically what my policy looks like. i will not raise tacks on middle income folks. i will not lower the share of tacks paid by high-income individuals, and i will make sure that we bring down rates, we limit deductions and exemptions. >> what are we talking about, the mortgage deduction, the charitable deduction? >> the devil is in the details. the angel is in the policy which is creating more jobs. >> right. freedom, check. angels, check. throw in the towel, mr. president. this guy is going to obviously win. let's get right to our panel. in los angeles msnbc contributor matt miller. in minneapolis anna marie cox, correspondent for "the guardian" and in washington msnbc political analyst karen finney. anna, if i might begin with you, in listening to mitt romney's responses this weekend and looking at the diagnosticcle and statistical manual of mental illness he appears to be suffering two forms of delusion, grandiose delusion where the individual has an inflated view of himself and also perscu
the united states is weak and withdrawing and you do that, you leave a power vacuum. jenna: joining us now, -- kt mcfarland, fox security analyst. you worked inside a variety of administration as part of the defense department. what do you think is going on here? >> initially, jenna, i thought, okay they don't want to be accused after mission accomplished moment. president said we won the war or terror. bin laden is dead and now he is campaigning. if it looks like there was terrorist attack or maybe al qaeda affiliation they don't want to say that so they really didn't want to have that mission accomplished banner behind them going into an election. now if what we just uncovered here at fox news with bret baier, if the administration knew on day one it was not only a terrorist attack but it was an al qaeda attack, if they knew before day one because there was a defense department public report saying al qaeda in libya, a profile, what did they know and when did they know it? i worked in the white house during water gaet -- watergate, the steady constant drip, drip, drip, the story changed
of what's going on in the united states. the real problem that the republicans have in this campaign is, they have a terrible candidate. mitt romneis not a good id but potentially even bigger problem is that the electorate does not seem to be buying what the republicans are offering. when romney picked ryan as vice president, i said to my wife, i think romney may have lost the election here. threas i saithas bee picking paul ryan, it opened up that argument of the republican party as extreme and the democrats just pounced on that as you would expect them to do. d the country does not want those extreme aspects of the republican party, those extreme right wing policies. theyo ree 'st us into this trouble both overseas with the war in iraq and also with the economy. and they are not going for it anymore. the republic no longer belies that the way to help middle cls and low-income families is to give more money to the rich. ulvo tidught tt tt rney he decided not to do that. >> i feel like the country republicans people in the middle and on the left want a republican party that's essential
that the united states will, quote, do what it must. >> america wants to resoe this issue through diplomacy, and we believ e' still time and space to do so. that time is not limited. >> the president defended the right to free speech while at the same time condemning the murder of an american ambassador and attacking the embassies ovseas >>reooro excusing the killing of innocence, no video to stifying the attack on the embas embassy. >> joini me now both of "time" magazi. thank you for your time. a lot gng on today. interestingly enough have to starthismeffy sg thesent givg this big foreign policy speech before the u.n., he just tweeted out about the nfl referee situation. don't know what that says, if he is just comfortable foreign policy wise lng t lls,he showing he can juggle a bunch of things but nernls the president's personal signature saying nfl on both sides of the aisle hopes the lockout is over so. ma sense of it. ie sit hours he rublins he's retwooeting about the nfl refs. >> it's the most important thing going on right now. no, there's a lot going on right now. this is f foreign
to but it at that time, and that was one of the biggest decisions we've made, the united states was in a very tough situation at that time. neil: you were for bailing those others out, because of the whole supply? >> remember we actually testified on behalf of temporary help for gm and chrysler, we concluded, that if gm and chrysler, went into freefall, they could have taken down the industry and u.s. economy. neil: you don't think you would have survived that or toyota with plants here. >> we all would have been in real trouble. we did it, -- we could have really contributed to u.s. going from a recession. neil: that rescue of a good thing? >> it was the right thing to did at the time, but to your point, i am just so pleased that we did not access one dollar of taxpayer money, we were on a plan to create a viable ford way before that recession hit. neil: there seems to be a bigger macro picture to, that you know that is big government, about well not big government. many saying it has gone too far since, and we built a slippery slope. what do you think that that the government is too unwieldy, res
into a tailspin. >> not the threat just for the united states of america this is the threat for the global economy given the size of the u.s. economy, and its linkages with many other countries in the globe. neil: so there you have it all on us, the whole globe. our fiscal mess in u.s. is a bis mess for the whole world. are you kidding me? france digs itself into a deeper hold every day,ments ts wants te richest at 75% there that is fine, we want to imminent minor cuts over the course of a decade, that is not find? i don't think so pepe . i call it selective sides on point of europeans who would sooner point a finger at us, than look at themselves in the mirror. they have built their finish toilet, and they blame it on us, that stinks. last i checked it is your bed that is sinking, your treasured club getting clubbed, and your euro is the real zero, it takes call tor crist to -- gall for crist to sound so punchy, in any access or language, how shall i say it le pew . this just in. a lot of votes already in, with millions of americans voting early, this makes you rethink of strategy of a end of med
in the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. but there is absolutely no justification in this type of senseless violence. none whatsoever. >> it is obvious that the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. gerri: what you make of this? >> this is disgraceful. we have nothing to apologize for. finally from the white house had to come out and expose their lies that the libyan attack was premeditated, it was a terrorist attack and had nothing to do with the video. the fact of the matter is the apology by the president of the united states, the secretary of state has made us more vulnerable to further attacks, the excuse that they wanted us to believe, and now, our president has been the excuse to be valid for the attacks that we are seeing, not only in libya, but the attacks that we have seen in egypt on our embassy and throughout the middle east. gerri: john, i would like to turn to you. the administration appears to be changing its tune on the cause of this attack. ja
obama left the white house now, but earlier today, he vowed to find the murders. >> the united states condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. we're working with the government of libya to secure our diplomats, and i directed the administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world, and make no mistake, we will work with the libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people. >> general national congress of libya just relesioned a statement calling the attack a disapproval or condemning and disapproving of the criminal attack on americans. president obama left here a short while ago headed to nevada for campaign events. back to you. liz: okay. thank you very much, rich edson. again, the conflicting information. now it could possibly have been a very coordinated military style attack versus an angry mob. we are following the story closely. gerri willis will have more on it on her show as well as melissa francis. in the meantime, live here in san fransisco at the intel forum. what's this mean? listen, this is a d
're the first lady of the united states, you have a bevy of dresses designed for you, and that is no different for ann romney, but that plays into the narrative, so that's why you see the focus on it. it's a down time in the economy, and it is an attempt, again, to suggest that the romneys are out of touch with middle class americans, which that will be up to the american people to decide, but i think that story plays into that narrative. >> i want to button this up with something else we see so prevalently in this day and age is digital media. the number of tweets that were rolling in per minute when it came to michelle obama. 28,000 tweets per minute while she was speaking. she's not even the candidate. look how it compared to the left. mitt romney's measurement was only 14,000 tweets per minute. but let's finish it this way by saying, as you said, she's not running. she may have an effect but she's not running. important to note that. >> and she's also the first lady of the united states, and she's been in a very prominent role for five years now, so let's -- you know, i think balance it by
, in the united states, i mean, here we are with a different demographic story, we're living longer, people talking about living to 100 now. in fact, social security hasn't changed at all. so, shouldn't we be changing based on the evolution of a country, of a city? i mean, that's one of the issues. if you're going to be living longer and needing more of the benefit from the country, don't you need to change some of the promises? >> i'm all for change. change has everybody in on it. but we faced a very strong antitax, antibiotic spending, antigovernment ideology. when you're talking about a city, not the state or federal government, means the things people experience every day, cops, fire, sanitation, police, schools, that stuff turns out to be much more important to the quality of life than with e mig have thought. there's a work out here. there will be changes. changes will come. but it has to be done with decent respect for all the players. >> what do you think should be cut, then? >> what do i think should be cut? oh, i think you can find in any system -- >> where? what? give me one idea
the world... ...with the best math scores. ...the united states would be on that list. in 25th place. let's raise academic standards across the nation. let's get back to the head of the class. let's solve this. you walk into a convtional mattress store, it's really not about you. they say, "well, if you wanted a firm bed you can lie on one of those." we provide the exact individualization that your body needs. welcome to the sleep number store's biggest sale of the year. not just ordinary beds on sale, but the bed that can change your life on sale. the sleep number bed. never tried this before. this is your body there. you can see a little more pressure in the hips. take it up one notch. oh gosh, yes. when you're playing around with that remote, you get that moment where you go, "oh yeah" oh, yeah! ... and it's perfect. right now, every sleep number bed is on sale. queen mattresses now start at just $599. and for one week only, save an incredible 50% on our silver limited edition bed-but only through labor day and only while supplies last. once you experience it, there's no going back. wo
's not battling for foreign aid for us or protection from the united states not merely fighting for its life as a sovereign nation or protecting its economy or way of life. it's literally fighting for the existence of the jewish people. jews have been haunted and marked for annihilation over 2000 years, within the lifetime of many of the present day jews, the painful memories of the holocaust are still firsthand for some of the survivors who are still alive. many israelis are one generation away from parents and relatives who were murdered in an attempt to do what iran has vowed it will do. and wipe them from the face of the earth. and having been so close to extension, no rational personal could deny iran's mad dog leader for nuclear weapon. and israel has been our ally in the middle east, the only nation in that part of the world, its democratic government and liberties come close to mirroring ours. we have far more, we have an organic relationship with them. a threat to israel is a threat to the united states. and when an israeli soldier is sworn into the military, he or she is taken to t
with an incumbent president of the united states. >> romney's bus has another pot hole to navigate around this week. the campaign released his 2011 tax documents on friday afternoon, along with a 20-year summary of his returns since 1990. the 2011 returns show the governor paid 14.1% in taxes, on over $13 million of investment income. president obama's campaign is already bringing romney's taxes back to the forefront releasing this ad in ohio today. >> mitt romney attacked 47% of americans who pay no income tax including veterans, elderly, the disabled. >> my job is not to worry about those people. >> doesn't the president have to worry about everyone? mitt romney paid just 14.1% in taxes last year. he keeps millions in bermuda and the cayman islands, won't release his tax returns before 2010. maybe instead of attacking others on taxes, be romney should come clean on his. >> and this weekend the president made sure to highlight what is by now quite obvious to most americans namely that mitt romney is not strapped for cash. >> and i want to keep your taxes low. but i can afford to pay a little more
